Success is a Choice

October 24, 2016 in Success & Family

YOU CAN DO IT!  Do what?  Anything you Choose!
NEVER FORGET! With few exceptions, we all begin at about the same starting line.

  • Unless inherited, your boss probably wasn’t born owning the company you now work for.
  • Your Real Estate broker wasn’t born with his license or successful brokerage,
  • Your physician with his Medical license
  • Your attorney with his Juris Doctorate, etc… (I certaintly wasn’t!).

In each and every case they had attitudes and beliefs that allowed them to make the choices and decisions that brought them to the esteemed place they now hold.  But it still came down to choosing to ACT!   They took action!  Step by step, they slowly moved towards their destination.  It’s rarely quick or easy, but with consistent positive action, SUCCESS IS INEVITABLE! !

Success Principle #1 Control Your Focus!

September 2, 2016 in Success & Family, Uncategorized

Obstacles are those things you see when you take your eyes off the goal”.  Cavitt Robert.
If you are not where you want to be… You Can Change It…   Everyone—everyday can find a reason NOT to do the things they OUGHT to do in order to accomplish the things they WANT to do.  Nothing is easier than making excuses.
Understand.  No matter how bad it seems… no matter how bad it actually is.  As long as you don’t lose faith in yourself… as long as you focus on what you want to accomplish rather than simply cursing the obstacles in your path, you can overcome and accomplish virtually anything.  With FOCUS and PERSISTENCE you can not only SURVIVE… you can THRIVE!  I did.

Following is the God’s honest truth of the impossible circumstances, obstacles and failures I overcame to create ASN (The Solutions Network).  It contains absolutely, NO, embellishments.  I fourished, not due to the brilliance of an idea, but rather the commitment to a principle; a principle that anyone can use.  No matter your circumstances… you can overcome and you can thrive!  Read the rest of this entry →

Success Principles

June 9, 2016 in Success & Family, Uncategorized

Want Success?    Be Willing to Act,   Be Prepared to Fail and Unwilling to Blame!
Success entails action, temporary failure and the acceptance of responsibility i.e. No Excuses!
Without the capacity to fail and get back up, the ability to succeed simply doesn’t exist!
When you DO fail… When you do have that set back… Don’t Make Excuses! Don’t Blame. LEARN. Blaming is nothing but a waste of time. Get back up, analyze what happened, learn from it and do it again… but this time, do it better.  Read the rest of this entry →

In this message, I want to talk about dealing with two of the most destructive obstacles to success.  The Fear of Failure and the negativity of others. Without the resolve and faith to go on, in spite of the opinions of those around you and the setbacks that are a natural part of accomplishment, success is not possible.  The single most important factor separating those who achieve great things and those who don’t, is their perception of… and reaction tofailure and negativity…

First, understand the moment you declare that you are going to do something different, something that can change your life and even the lives of others; you are going to get push back from the people you know.  There is no getting around it.  Those who dare to make their dreams come true are often considered crazy, by those around them… sometimes even by the entire world. 

In the next message we are going to deal with rejection, but for now, understand  IT WILL HAPPEN.  When it does.  Ignore them and believe in you! Read the rest of this entry →

Without the willingness to risk failure, nothing happens… Without it, Success is simply IMPOSSIBLE!.   If you aren’t failing, you’re not really trying.  And if you’re not failing enough… you aren’t trying hard enough.

“You can get everything in life you want… if you just help enough other people get what they want”.
Zig Ziglar
See… Success Principles 
Simple Success Key
I’ve always believed that when it’s all said and done, what we have and what we achieve in life is simply a reflection of the service we gave. Whether it is what you gave in the way of your personal service to others; or the benefit of the products you offer, or by providing real hope and opportunity to those who need it most. It’s all about the service. The more we give and the better we give, the more we have… spiritually and financially. No where is this more true than with ASN. Read the rest of this entry →

How to Succeed? Fail Often!

September 8, 2012 in Success & Family, Uncategorized

Want Success? Want a Better Life?  
Stop Thinking About it… Stop Talking About it…  START DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
The life you want is within your grasp… But you have to get off the couch.  Do Something!  Success and achievement requires more than a great idea. It requires action, consistent action. Most of us have a thousand excuses that allow us to comfortably sit on the couch, in front of the computer, day after day, planning, thinking and talking about all the great things we can and will do “someday”.

  • It’s not what you know…
  • It’s not what you think…
  • It’s not what you plan…
  • It’s not how great your potential is…
  • It’s not how brilliant you are…
  • The only thing that really matters is what you actually do!…  Read the rest of this entry →

Success… Is It Worth It?

July 12, 2012 in Success & Family

I was recently asked to name just one thing that made success worth it from my perspective in the last 30 days of my life.  It was a thought provoking question… so here are my thoughts  😉

Success is always worth it.  You reap it’s benefits every moment of every day of your life… As long as you properly define success.

If one defines success in only monetary terms, it becomes and objective that can destroy them and everything they hold dear.
It all depends on what we mean by success.  Success is different a completely different animal depending on who you ask, when you ask, what their current situation is and their stage of life at the time of the question. Read the rest of this entry →

You Have to be Consistent

June 28, 2012 in Success & Family

Without Action, nothing happens…  Without Consistent Action… Nothing Worthwhile Happens!
ACTION!  So you’ve figured out what you are going to do, you have your business plan, you are ready to go.  GREAT!  You just made the first phone call or placed that first ad, now what?  DO IT AGAIN over and over and over!  Doing exactly the right thing does little, unless it is done repeatedly.  You have to be consistent.  THE KEY TO CONSISTENT INCOME?… SIMPLE… Consistent Action.  Do A Little Every Day!  There are always a hundred positive actions we can undertake.  Choose a few of the best and do them repeatedly.  

It’s better to do ONE positive thing 100 times, than to do 100 positive things only ONCE

What is Success?

June 24, 2012 in Success & Family, Uncategorized

What is success?
It has been defined by many as “The progressive realization of a worthwhile dream“.  But only you can decide what that dream is.
Within reason, it can be anything that you want it to be… and don’t let anyone tell you any differently.  If your definition of success revolves around financial success, we can help.  If it’s a successful home and family life, you will find that upcoming articles will be of great assistance.  The thing to remember is that success is not just money, it’s achieving those things that are important to you at any point in your life.  Read the rest of this entry →
